Abstract

This is one of the most extraordinary of Haydn’s late works. Five versions exist, including the original orchestral work. This keyboard version was made by his publisher, Artaria, and was thoroughly approved by the composer. It is a work full of passion and contemplation and given a superlative performance. It is the first Australian recording of this piece, and it shines in comparison to the six other performances currently available on CD.
